Exchange 2010 DAG - Move Database
Posted on 2014-11-11
I am looking for some advice on how some of you would handle this. I currently have two Exchange 2010 mailbox servers setup in a DAG with one database. The database and Logs are currently housed on a Fiber SAN that I am retiring and moving over to an iSCSI SAN. I setup the new drives on both servers where I want to copy the database and logs over to and I have been doing my research on what would be the best way to handle the move.
My question is should I just suspend the database copy and dismount my database and move them to the new drives manually, mount and restart the copy. Or would it be easier to just create a new database and move mailboxes over?
The old path on each server N:\Database M:\Logs
New database path S:\Database T:\Logs
I have about 800 users and the database size is no more than 160GB. What do you guys think?
